  1. Context: A couple years ago I took a trip down to Oaxaca. About an hour away from Oaxaca city is Ocotlan de Morelos. What I love about this state is how it highlights what Mexican culture is. It has an amazing blend of indigenous and colonial culture, amazing culinary culture, folklore and tradition. This small town is popular for its textile work.

  2. Context: The lovely, soft afghan was made my my mother. That's my niece Sophie's hand digging out her beautifully shiny marbles for us to see.

  3. wonderful wonderful wonderful - both shots... the colors... the trip back to childhood with the marbles...
